- Albemarle residents had one more chance Tuesday night to lobby the county supervisors before they adopt a new tax rate and approve a new budget. Amy Gore is the mother of a high school student who spent spring break looking at colleges. Gore says college representatives told her that Western Albemarle High School enjoys a good reputation. She says she fears that won’t be the case if the county has to increase class sizes Other speakers declared the county schools have too many administrators. They got a response from Stacy England, the assistant principal at Burley Middle School. England says she and her principal stay busy supervising a total of 65 faculty memers. The supervisors are considering a new property tax rate of 80.8 cents for every $100 of assessed value. They will adopt new tax rates and an updated county budget on April 15th.
